Abstract. The article presents the results of linguistic, axiological, and stylistic analysis based on the collection of amateur poetry for the occasions "For such a small company..." (2019) published in Yekaterinburg. The collection includes poetic texts written in different years "by friends for friends". All the authors are philologists who graduated from Ural University in 1966. The study is essential, as it identifies the system of basic values reflected in the poems written for different occasions, which preserve the axiological code of Russian culture. The original texts provide new material for scientific analysis, which shows the literature-centrism of Russian culture and makes it possible to clarify the status of poetry for occasions. The intra-group poetry of this kind is found to have axiological vocabulary, which is characterized by being correlated to a certain chronotope, by presenting a system-forming integreme (in the analyzed texts it is the axiologeme of "friendship"), a special set of nominations of basic values, and by verbalizing value preferences. The axiological content of the congratulatory texts is specifically studied, wherein the motive of the family is developed. There are described creative speech practices: the development of unique image parallels that form the basis of comparative tropes, the use of technologies of transforming precedent texts and different types of puns. The authors' orientation on the aesthetic impression is proved to reinforce the worldview significance of the transmitted values of cooperation and spiritual unity.

Key words: linguistic axiology, axiologeme, poetry for occasions, identity, communicative convention, creative speech practices, cultural code, literature-centrism.
